    @shanly725:  Skip it.  I’m a Dr. and have to decide between crossing it out and “putting on airs” or agreeing to a a title that bothers me more.  I think using titles among friends and family is pretentious.  But if someone insists on calling me by one, I’d rather be referred to by my education than my gender or marital status.  

    “Please indicate the names of all guests who will be attending,” seems polite and direct enough that no one will screw it up unless they’re being really obtuse.

    I’ve always thought the “M” thing is odd. We’re just doing ” Name(s) “
    I’m pretty sure people can figure that one out! 😀

    I printed the names out on each RSVP.  It was a bit of a pain, but no one failed to fill it in correctly!

    I also found it confusing, plus we invited a lot of doctors.  I just put a couple lines, like:

    ________________________

    ________________________

    __ will attend

    __ will not attend

     

    Meal choices:

    __ Beef

    __ Chicken

    __ Vegan

     

    I figured that with the attend/not attend lines not being complete sentences (as opposed to “We/I will attend”), it prompted people to put in their names in.  All of our responses had the names filled out.

    I always thought the M__ just looked weird and I didn’t know what it was for a long time. I like the PPs ideas of leaving blank lines for them to write in their own names or just printing the names yourself.

    I vote either “names” or just blank lines, seems less awkward to me! Maybe it’s just that I don’t like refering to myself as a Ms though =)

    I think the M is outdated. I did Name(s) and it has been AWESOME so far with RSVPs!

    I’ve never even heard of doing M before this and I assume that neither have a lot of people, so it would be easiest to do Name, less confusion that way.

    I always thought the M thing was so stupid. So Name(s) it is.
